Weill Cornell's state-of-the-art Coleman Center for Electrocardiography is located in our newly renovated and easy to find facilities. We perform and provide professional interpretation of a range of inpatient and outpatient electrocardiographic procedures, including routine 12-lead electrocardiograms (ECGs), ambulatory and event monitor recordings, exercise ECGs, signal-averaged ECGs, and transtelephonic pacemaker monitoring.
Our Electrocardiography laboratory is one of the busiest in the nation performing over 110,000 ECG interpretations a year, including over 100,000 12-lead ECGs, over 1,000 exercise stress tests, more than 1,000 ambulatory monitors and over 4,000 transtelephonic pacemaker evaluations.
Our team is led by academic cardiologists with over 30 years of clinical and research experience in electrocardiography and includes Cardiology fellows-in-training and highly-experienced technicians. We provide a uniquely high-level of clinical service to New York Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell and the surrounding community as well as a rich training environment for our Cardiology fellows.
Considered the first diagnostic tools for evaluation of anatomic changes and arrhythmias, these noninvasive tests use an electrocardiogram (ECG) to assess the electrical activity produced by the heart. In addition to the resting 12-lead ECG, the electrical activity of the heart can be examined over 24 hours, by using portable ambulatory recorders. Event recorders can be used over even longer time periods to detect infrequent rhythm irregularities. The ECG can also be examined during exercise testing..
Types of electrocardiographic procedures:
An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a diagnostic test that is used to detect abnormalities in the heart's rhythm, as well as to provide important information about damage to the electrical system of the heart, heart attacks, structural abnormalities in the heart's walls, and more. Weill Cornell provides the full range of advanced electrocardiography services, including:
